A company hoping to succeed in the evolving telecom industry must be assured that its structure, resources, knowledge base, operational processes, and other dynamics all are equipped to promote its service mission appropriately and respond to customer and market demands.

JSI can perform a comprehensive assessment of your company’s operational profile, production/service strategies, network/technology resources/options, and management tenets. This includes employee interviews and focus groups; administration and analysis of cultural “vitality” surveys; a review of processes, procedures, and support systems; a summary report; and discussion and follow-up of comprehensive findings and recommendations.

As part of our review we’ll identify strategic partnerships and alliances that will enable you – and your partners – to achieve significant cost-saving, resource-growing economies of scale in management, financial analysis and review, accounting and regulatory compliance, network/plant maintenance, and other operational areas.
